Why buy the Cree CR6-800L? The answer comes down to just one word, efficiency. Every 90 watt bulb replaced with a CR6 LED module saves over 80% on energy costs, runs cool to eliminate additional HVAC usage, and eliminates bulb changes over the 50,000 life of the bulb. Realistic payback times run as low as two years when the ENERGY STAR® qualified CR6-800L LED downlight is installed in areas with high light usage, and hundreds of dollars in additional energy savings can be realized over the life of the light. All this is accomplished with no sacrifice in light quality or dimmability, especially when compared to compact fluorescent bulbs. The outstanding quality of Cree LED downlights and a 5 year warranty make the decision to switch your home to LED lighting an easy one.

Flickers.Review by Kindacreeky
Light flickers continuously. No dimmer involved. Moved to different circuit on my house, and still flickers. Left complaint at Cree customer service, and got no response. Not happy. I wanted to use these in11 new cans in my remodel, now having second thoughts. (Posted on 6/11/2015)
Great lightsReview by Andrey Sukhachev
I bought 4 lights for our master bedroom. They instantly turn on and off (unlike Halo/Commercial Electric or other Lowe's or Home Depot brands), dim well and have really warm and (subjectively) eye pleasing color. We thought we need a central ceiling fixture in addition to them to have enough light, but they're very bright so we won't be needing it. I ordered 6 more for our hallway and living room. Can't go wrong with Cree's. (Posted on 10/15/2013)
Two thumbs up!Review by Ed Rempalski
I bought 4 of these for a bathroom, replacing other LED units. These are DEAD silent and have the best/lowest/smoothest dimming of any LED I've yet owned. The light is perfect for us. Installation could not be easier. Happy campers! (Posted on 9/30/2013)
Very happyReview by Ryan
These lights have a great color spectrum, and a surprisingly wide distribution. I use a Lutron C.L dimmer. The lights dim to a very low moonlight-like shade. I rarely run them at 100% because they are so bright. If you switch on the lights on a dim setting, less than 50%, they sometimes blink until raising the dimmer somewhat. These cause static interference with my cordless phone (900 Mhz digital). Polar Ray shipped the same day and I received them just a few days after. (Posted on 9/18/2013)
The answerReview by Joseph Olivieri
We are not fans of cfl's, and were interested in finding an alternative. The Cree CR6-800 has been the answer. We bought one to see if it would perform adequately. We were so satisified, we bought 5 more and did a reconfiguration of the lighting in our kitchen. We are VERY pleased. The intensity (lumens) and color of the light are great. I would highly recommend these lights!! (Posted on 7/29/2013)
Not badReview by randy taylor
I am a professional lighting designer and installed in my own house to try them. Best consumer grade retrofit I have tried yet. I would recommend them for older homes with down light cans open to an attic space above that are not air tight. Cost efficient method to minimize air flow. (Posted on 7/29/2013)
great light, easy installReview by ann
These LEDs look great and provide lots of lighting! Both the light quality and appearance of the fixure are clean and don't see any dots and the light quality is soft not glaring. Polar-Ray delivered in 2 days with regular shipping. Great vendor! I definitely recommend this product and store as the price is comparable to anything I could buy locally and Polar-Ray delivers quickly. (Posted on 5/29/2013)
So far so good!Review by Randi
These units were just what we had been looking for in our bathroom...simple to install, well made, no trim needed, arrived quickly, were securely packaged, and most importantly, provides a nice warm (yet bright) light. We have since reordered more for our kitchen and in the future plan to replace more throughout our home. (Posted on 5/6/2013)
Best 90 watt replacement...for nowReview by Tim
It took quite a bit of research before pulling the trigger on these. Of course the price on these are prohibitive. It's easy to say the CREE CR6-800L are today's best alternative vs incandescent. They by no means are the end all be all. The CRI is not as good as it could be, but it's at the top for today's technology. Regarding the quality and ease of installation for a retrofit, these are excellent. Polar-Ray is a quality distributor and I will have no problems being a repeat customer. (Posted on 2/25/2013)
Excellent Incandescent ReplacementReview by Dave
I replaced 6 incandescent down lights in the kitchen with the Cree CR6-800L LEDs and couldn't be happier. Color temperature is comparable and light output is higher. I’d recommend installing these on a dimmer switch – the 800 lm brightness is great, but can be a bit much at night. (Posted on 2/6/2013)
Cree CR6-800LReview by Kenneth
First class lighting. Warm lighting. No drawbacks that I can see. I hope it lasts the full 50,000 hours. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Product & Polar-Ray Outstanding!Review by Joe Basile
I am a professional remodeler & builder. The room has a sloped ceiling & is roughly 16'x 20'. I installed (12) regular Juno 6" recessed cans & bought Cree CR6-800L because I wanted the most light available. Polar-Ray had them at my door 2-3days after I ordered and that was Christmas week: the busiest shipping week of the year. Anyhow the lights are awesome and so is Polar-Ray. I will be installing more of the Cree products down the road and will be using Polar-Ray. Thanks. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Fantastic ReplacementsReview by Robert Brockmann
I began by trying one bulb to replace a 100w flood light in the kitchen. The light is bright and white. I now have all bulbs replaced in the kithcen and living room. Extremely happy with these Cree CR6-800L bulbs. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Great lightsReview by Earl Peck
Great light color and quality throughout the whole dimmable range. These lights produce a lot of very good light and the dimmers don't buzz. Given their very low energy use, I don't know how you could ask for more. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
This is how all lights should dim.....Review by Kevin Medberry
I love how these lights dim. They stay the same color of white and don't turn red-orange like incandescents. That plus there is NO buzz from the dimmer as you get with incandescents. This makes them a joy to have and adjust. The light dims way down (the spec says 5% and that seems reasonable). (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Great LightsReview by Tom Hinzman
We just installed 5 of these in our kitchen. They replaced a fluorescent and the results were amazing. Easy to install with the Cree cans. Definitely plan to install some more of these in existing can lights. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
What I have been waiting for!Review by Alyson
I have been waiting for a light bulb to replace my 100W flood lights in my kitchen. I purchased a Cree CR6 that replaces a 60W bulb and was pleased with everything except it was a little too dim for my taste. When I saw this version had come out, I immediately ordered one. It is exactly what I had been hoping for! It has the all the great features of the original CR6 (instant on, great light color, no harshness, etc.) and the light is brighter like I prefer. Perfect for me! (Posted on 1/25/2013)
